Randolph Police Respond to Barricaded Subject Incident Overnight

RANDOLPH — Chief William Pace reports that the Randolph Police Department responded to a incident involving a barricaded subject overnight.

There were no injuries reported and the incident ended peacefully with the subject surrendering to police.

At approximately 9:50 p.m. Monday, July 8, Randolph Police responded to a home on Paine Road for a report of a man with a gun making threats to harm others.

Upon arrival, Randolph Police were able to confirm that a 60-year-old Randolph man was inside of the house with a gun. A woman was also inside of the house with him. The man refused to come out of the home and officers set up a perimeter around the home. Out of an abundance of caution, the MetroLEC SWAT team was called to respond to the scene.

After a lengthy negotiation with the man, he surrendered to police without further incident shortly before 1 a.m. Tuesday. The man was taken to a local hospital for evaluation.

The incident remains under active investigation by the Randolph Police Department and charges will likely be brought against the man.

A handgun was retrieved and seized as evidence inside of the home.

Randolph Police Investigating After Laptop Computer Thrown into Reservoir

RANDOLPH — Chief William Pace reports that the Randolph Police Department is investigating after a laptop computer was thrown into the Randolph reservoir and later recovered over the weekend.

At approximately 11 p.m. on Saturday, a town employee was working at the pumping station at 275 Pond St. at the Great Pond Reservoir, when the worker noticed a blue Subaru sedan parked near the water.

The worker saw a woman near the vehicle throw a small object into the reservoir, making a loud splashing sound. It was too dark to see what the object was. The woman then got in her vehicle and drove away.

Randolph Police were notified and responded, but could not locate anything.

On Sunday afternoon, the Metropolitan Law Enforcement Council (MetroLEC) Marine Unit dive team responded to the reservoir and recovered the laptop.

The laptop was subsequently taken to the Randolph Police Department to see if it could be analyzed.

At this time, the initial investigation does not indicate any criminal activity, other than the laptop being thrown into the reservoir. Dumping waste and foreign objects into the reservoir is strictly prohibited.

At no time was there any threat to the drinking water in the reservoir.

If anyone saw any suspicious activity in the area of the reservoir over the weekend, they are asked to please call the Randolph Police Department at 781-963-1212.
